Her Addiction Got The Best Of Her
“After a Christmas vacation we were home and I asked her about marriage. ‘I don’t want to marry you, I never wanted to marry you, I never will marry you.’ Followed by a thirty-minute speech about missing her single life.
I died a little inside, honestly. Tried to make it work but I realize now I stopped trying after that. Eight months later she moves out. Three months after that she is begging me to take her back, she wants to get married, she wants to own a house. And I’m just too hurt to believe her.
Therapy is helping, but a five-year relationship died that day. And I miss it, but I’m not sure I miss her anymore.
Her addiction played a major role in her choice and feelings. She had, apparently, been using for a few months and kept it hidden. If you need help quitting, go find it, it messes up more than just your life. The people you hurt the worst are the ones you love the most, and that love for you may never end, but how much they care for you just may.”
